    I was diagnosed 2 years ago with a genetic form of hyperlipidemia. my cholesterol was 339!

    first you need to have a blood test and find out if it is genetic or not. for me I could eat healthy and exercise all my life and my cholesterol would still be high.

    if it itsnt genetic, I was told by my doctor to eat as healthy as possible. cut out all processed foods. eat leaner cuts of meat and bump up my fiber. He also said to exercise daily, even if it means just to walk around the block.

    after two years of eating healthy and exercising and taking lipitor my level is down to 177. for me it will be a lifetime struggle.

    good luck.

    STAY OFF CAFFEINE THE WORST DRUG ANY WHERE. ALSO UP YOUR OMEGA INTAKE 3-6-9 , TRY DR YUDOS OIL IN HEALTH STORE OR FLAVORED LIQUID PILLS.

    High fiber diet rich in whole grains (like natural oatmeal or even cheerios) and plenty of exercise. If it is borderline, that should be enough.

    Do a Yahoo search using the phrase "cholesterol info". There is a tremendous amount of info there.

    Decrease your intake of fatty foods in general, and particularly things like eggs, prawns, avocado and bacon. Take some regular exercise. Increase your intake of oats, and omega 3 and 6 oils (forget faddy health food supplements, you can get them in your diet). Have a look at the website below. There’s a good explanation about cholesterol and a diet sheet that you can print out and stick to the fridge.
